    When a dream-catcher misses the catch

    The young man was good in studies. He completed his Graduation and Post-Graduation. But since his childhood he was fascinated by the civil servants. He started nurturing his own dream. He wanted to be a civil servant.

    He started pursuing his dream. Completing his Post-Graduation, he came to Delhi and took admission in a reputed coaching institute paying a hefty amount. He started preparing for Indian Civil Services examination.

    Many well-wishers advised him to simultaneously appear in other competitive examinations. Some people advised him to appear in State Civil Services examination. Some advised to appear in Railway Recruitment examinations, some other advised to appear in Staff Selection Commission examinations and so on. But the young man remained adamant and targetted only the Indian Civil Services examination.

    Time passed. The man somehow could not click the Civil Services examination. In the first two attempts, he could not clear the Prelims. In the next two attempts, he failed in the Mains examination.

    After some years, the not-so-young man realised that he had exhausted all attempts for Civil Services. Not only that, he had also crossed the age-limit for other recruitment examinations. His parents stopped sending money. He had no other alternatives left except giving tuitions to sustain himself in the costly city of Delhi.

    Unfortunately, the dream-catcher missed the most important catch of his life.

    So the moral of the story is to have an alternative always. With the sort of difficulties, he underwent if he tried state services he might have succeeded in that. But he has not done that. One should always think of ifs and buts also and should always plan in such a way that his kitchen will be running and you need not worry about the kitchen.
    always confident
